The betting odds are starting to come in for WrestleMania 33, but it’s still too soon to make the safe bet. That will come in the final 60 minutes before the event begins. With days to go, here are my early favorites to leave tWrestleMania 33 as victors.

Despite what The Hardy Boys say, I think they’re headed back to WWE. It would make sense for them to appear at WrestleMania and get involved in the ladder match. So if the brothers need someone to feud with, it should be against Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson since they’re the top heel team on RAW. If there’s no Hardy appearance, then we might get new champs. Last year, Baron Corbin had his biggest moment in wrestling by debuting on the main roster at WrestleMania and winning the Andre The Giant Battle Royal. Now, he’s getting a push on TV and has the chance to take the IC title from Dean Ambrose (who was WWE Champion less than a year ago). Ambrose hasn’t done much has champ, so hopefully Corbin can change that. With Chris Jericho spending almost an entire 30 days touring with Fozzy, he needs to drop the United States Championship. Jericho is back getting others over and Kevin Owens winning the title in a great match at WrestleMania is probably the overall goal here. Should be another major win for Owens. The original plan was for Naomi to enter WrestleMania as champion. Plans quickly changed when an injury was discovered. She healed quickly and now should be the time to give Naomi another crack at the title. Alexa Bliss has been a decent champion, but Naomi has been working for years to represent the company. WWE needs to keep the Triple H – Seth Rollins feud going. They’ve only been building this storyline since October, if not earlier. This angle should go until SummerSlam, where Rollins gets the final win. Look for Triple H to go into a dark place to really ‘hurt’ Rollins and put him on the sidelines for a month. Then have Rollins work with Samoa Joe before back to Triple H in the summer.
